About The Harbor School
Early childhood education has been our specialty at The Harbor School since 1973, and we take this responsibility seriously. The early childhood years, in Preschool-Grade 3, are a critical developmental stage that forms the foundation of a child’s future growth and advancement.
We educate each child as a unique learner with differentiated instruction and individualized attention so that your child can develop and thrive to reach their fullest potential. We accomplish this with dynamic, experienced teachers in every classroom and a curriculum that increases in rigor, individual responsibility and social awareness over the course of a child’s time at Harbor.
To meet the development needs of the whole child, our program has three key components: academic, social emotional, and physical.
